It never ceases to amaze me how some religious people compartmentalise their lives to such an extent. So they will drive to work in their SUVs, make calls on their mobile, use their laptops, fly somewhere on holiday, make use of conventional medicine when they are ill, etc, etc - while at the same time attacking the very thing that has enabled them to enjoy those benefits in the first place; namely science. I think public education about science should place some emphasis on reminding people about its many practical applications. Religious miracles I have never seen - scientific and technological ones I encounter many times daily.
